Mutiara Timur Siang - recommended

This train has two different classes (Executive and Business Class), departure at 08.30 AM from Surabaya Gubeng and arrival at Banyuwangi 03.00 PM. It is the best option train as it arrive before evening, so that we can have more time to recover from jetlag and recover our body before hiking Kawah Ijen. Price Range IDR 100.000 - 200.000

The last option is getting Sritanjung Train which depart from Surabaya Gubeng Train Station at 01.30 PM then arrival in Banyuwangi 08.45 PM. This train is economic class only, which cost IDR 100.000

Staying at Kampung Osing Inn

Arriving at Banyuwangi, we need one night stay here just for a short sleep before going to hike Kawah Ijen at the same night. We have cheap room and the best service for guests, free WiFi, tasty breakfast, unlimited drinking water and coffee, also we have knowledgeable staff about the area.
